InStyle magazine chatted with Rooney Mara to find out the secret to her gorgeous skin and  get the scoop on her favorite products. To read more check out the current issue of InStyle magazine on newsstands now.

Your complexion is the envy of every beauty editor I know. Please don’t tell us it’s just good genes.
People are going to hate me for saying this, but I really don’t have a regimen. I don’t use a lot of products because my skin is so sensitive, though I always wear sunscreen, usually Chanel and Dermalogica. I try to eat healthfully and hardly ever drink alcohol. When you eat the right things, you don’t need that many products.

And the Rooney Mara don’t-hate-me-because-my-skin-looks-airbrushed diet consists of …
Well, I’m gluten-free. A bunch of people in my family have celiac disease, so I stopped eating wheat about a year ago, and right away I noticed a difference. I’m also vegan; I basically eat only fruits and vegetables. I’ve never felt better than I do now.

Let’s talk hair. Your jet-black strands and blunt baby bangs may well be in the Pinterest hall of fame for “aspirational cut.”
We did short bangs for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but it was when they grew out that people really started to like them. As for color, I’ve been lighter, but I prefer being brunette. I find that people with dark hair don’t need to wear as much makeup.

Professional pluckers tell me they get dozens of requests for “Rooney Mara brows.” Are they high-maintenance?
They’re actually no-maintenance—that’s why they’re so prominent!

NARS THE MULTIPLE
“I’m embarrassed to say, one of my favorite shades is Orgasm. I toss one of these sticks in my bag and rub it on whenever I need a hit of color.”

LAURA MERCIER LOOSE SETTING POWDER
“This is great at taking down the shine after you apply sun-screen. It adds a bit of matte—and never seems too powdery.”

ELIZABETH ARDEN EIGHT HOUR CREAM LIP PROTECTANT STICK
“This sheer tint, the lipstick version of Eight Hour Cream, smooths and moisturizes. It also has SPF 15. I have it in tons of shades.”

CLÉ DE PEAU BEAUTÉ CONCEALER
“My mom was the one who told me about this stick. It gives such good coverage, yet you look as though you’re not wearing anything at all.”

CHANEL VITALUMIÈRE AQUA ULTRA-LIGHT SUNSCREEN MAKEUP SPF 15
“Even though this tinted moisturizer is light, it does a terrific job of evening out my complexion without ever getting cakey.”

Rooney Mara stars in David Fincher-directed Calvin Klein commercial.

It’s not every day you see Rooney Mara smile – almost seems unnatural, doesn’t it? We’re used to seeing her in dark roles like ‘Girl With a Dragon Tattoo’ and ‘Side Effects.’

Rooney was named the face of Calvin Klein’s new fragrance, Downtown.

The commercial is set to “Runaway” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and is directed by David Fincher, who worked with Mara on TGWTDT.

She looks great in this commercial, doesn’t she? Very Audrey Hepburn.

FIRST LOOK! Rooney Mara for Calvin Klein’s new fragrance, Downtown

Calvin Klein has cast Rooney Mara as the face of its Downtown scent, which hit counters globally in September.

“I am very excited to be included in the group of amazing women that have been featured in the iconic advertising campaigns for Calvin Klein fragrances,” Mara told WWD of her new role, which includes TV spots directed by David Fincher and print ads shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino (pictured above). “It’s an honour to be part of a brand with such a legacy of breakthrough advertising.”

I think Rooney is the perfect pick for this campaign. I think she’s gorgeous!

Keira Knightley and Rooney Mara cover the 40th Anniversary issue of W Magazine!

27-year-old Keira Knightley is the face of the 2000s in the special 40th Anniversary issue of W Magazine. For her cover, Keira wore a Chanel jacket, and platinum blonde hair.

Talking about trends from the last decade she dislikes, she said: ‘I think skinny jeans and micro-miniskirts are very unfriendly.

‘I’ve been known to wear both, but on some days it seems like they were invented to make you feel bad about yourself.’

Despite being cast as a modern girl by the magazine, she spent months parading around in a corset for forthcoming Tolstoy adaptation Anna Karenina.

But despite starring in a string of blockbusters, Keira also revealed she prefers more offbeat fare when she munches on popcorn.

She said: ‘I have two (favourite films). The Beat that My Heart Skipped is a French film that I’ve watched again and again.

‘It’s so rough and yet still kind of beautiful. I love the juxtaposition of serenity and violence.

‘And My Life Without Me is understated and heartbreaking. The fact that the main character doesn’t tell anyone she’s very ill, it just gets me every time.’

Rooney Mara also appeared in the magazine.
